As the moon slips up, and the sun sets down,
I'm a highrise jockey, and I'm heaven-bound.
Do the workboot shuffle, loose brains from brawn.
I'm a monkey puzzle and the lid is on.

Can you guess my name?
Can you guess my trade?
I'm going to catch you anyway.
You might be right.
I'll give you guesses three.
Feel me climbing up your knee.
Guess what I am.
I'm a steel monkey.

Now some men hustle and some just think.
